Working With Content

Document content is often read from files, though it can also come from a database, a web service, or any other source and there are a variety of modules and other ways of working with content.

Child Pages

Front Matter

Front matter is a common concept in static generators that lets you define metadata for a file in a file header.

Linking To Documents

Statiq is generally used to generate HTML and as such, it's often necessary to link from one document to another.


Shortcodes are small but powerful macros that can generate content or add metadata to your documents.

Template Languages

A template language defines syntax you can use along with your content to describe how it should be rendered to a designated output format. Through various extension libraries, Statiq provides support for multiple templating engines and languages.
